Good evening.

Firstly, thanks to all of you who looked, voted and commented on my recent uploads, it is very much appreciated especially as I do not get in here very often these days.

Tonight I am uploading a portrait of a beautiful young lady who, I am sure you will agree, suits the title. V2 has been enhanced to produce a more tonal image fitting the title. My preference, though, is V1.

No, No, No - yes she's very beautiful but the creamier colour of V2 is much better for a redhead.
Redheads should never wear white or black!!!!
There have been parades all over the place with redheads recently and a programme on TV last week.

Like the over the shoulder look here Carol.
And Emily rings a bell with me.
Is this your niece ?
And I prefer V2.

Is it a HDR in V2 ? An adorably good looking lady.

My preference is V1 too, Carol. You lose the lovely rosiness in her cheeks in V2. But I must say the overall tone in V2 looks better.

I love how her hair and eyes have turned out in this Smile

You've shot this pretty young lady really well, from the pose to the lighting. And she's comfortable in front of the camera so kudos to her too Smile

She is my grand-daughter Mick, the one who sometimes uploads photos on here too!

No, I just altered the tones slightly using Photoshop.

V2 for me a lovely warm capture.

Like both. My daughter too is a natural red-head. Re ""Irishkate's" comment - my daughter wears white and black and looks wonderful in either. Think it comes down to tone of "red" and skin.

your fiddling with V2 makes it for me Carol

Have a good weekend

A very lovely portrait, Carol, both versions work well, but am just biased towards the warmer colours of V2 Wink

Sexy portrait indeed.

Isn't it funny how everybody has a different opinion? Something I am really learning from this site as it is so noticeable, and taste is a very personal thing. I like V1, I like the contrast and the colours, but I also like the fact that you gave us both options and the resulting debate!

I like both, but I think V2 has a warmer feel to it, as it would given the colour.

Beautiful portrait v2 for me
